HISTORY

Colonel Charles Broadwater, a soldier and landowner, settled in the region in 1754. The first recorded dwelling was built in 1767. In the 1850s, Dr. William Hendrick agreed to settle there if the town was named after his Vienna, New York hometown. Today, Vienna strives to balance the need for change while preserving history and small town character.

The outdoor theatre for children, which has been a tradition for generations is all about music, dance, puppetry, and storytelling.

A visit to historical sites such as the Freeman House can be fun for those interested in history.
